USA Today had an interesting article on Monday detailing how Cybercrooks are getting craftier (is that a word? more crafty? more craftierest?) on the scams designed to trick people into parting with personal information. A couple of the attacks listed include:

  • Email greeting cards that give intruders control of your router (specifically a popular router in Mexico).
  • Turn-key phishing kits with everything needed to create bogus bank websites.
  • Click fraud targeting small e-commerce sites to drive up fake ad revenues for crooks.

And here’s someone else with too much time on their hands (thanks Springtown!)!
